As we celebrate our Independence Day this weekend I am reminded that the fight for freedom has never ended for our nation. Although our Founders broke the chains of tyranny under Great Britain and gave birth to a new nation to be governed by the consent of the people, the threat of tyranny is always upon us and we must always take action to defeat it if we want to remain free.
Today, we find ourselves in a fight that we must win for the sake of our children. The only viable solution to stop the coming crisis is to change the structure of our government in order to restore the original purpose of the Constitution.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson penned the following words to describe the purpose of our government; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
The time for us to alter our government by organizing its powers in such form to secure our safety and happiness is NOW! That principle is found in Article V of the Constitution and it was placed in there as the ultimate check by the states against a runaway federal government. Only our Article V application can correct the abuses we are experiencing by this federal government by limiting its power and jurisdiction, restoring the balance of power back to the states and to the people.
However, we can only achieve this by adding Maine to the growing list of states that are rising up to defend our liberty and security. To achieve this, it is critical that we grow our grassroots army throughout the entire state now so that we are in a strong position to achieve this goal in 2017. Will you please consider joining our fight? Please watch the following video by Mark Meckler.

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” ~ Thomas Paine
Happy Independence Day!
